Looking to have a blast and see where my journey takes me. Hoping that my last year of training will make better than the year before.
How I Eat
I eat strict Paleo
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
Switched it up this year to add a bit of mass. I drink milk and eat cheese. A majority of my diet is quality food and I eat when I'm hungry.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I incorporate CrossFit.com workouts
I write my own programming
I record my workouts
I religiously follow Old Country Iron Club and their training blog. Since I've began following Zach Filer and his training blog I've seen tremendous gains in my strength and specifically in my knowledge of the kettle bell. Excited to see where the next year takes me.
My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)
I have completed the CrossFit Level 1 certificate course
I have attended one or more specialty courses
I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit
I train other people
I began CrossFit AT CrossFit Fusion on May 25th, 2009 and never looked back. I earned my CrossFit level 1 cert 6 months later and began to really submerse myself in everything CrossFit. I also read a ton of literature on Olympic Liftin and power lifting. In September of 2010 I took a positon as a coach at Fallout CrossFit and amassed a ton of coaching experience. My time at Fallout CrossFit was very instrumnetal in establishing myself as a Joey the CrossFit coach. I attended the CrossFit Olympic lifting cert in may 0f 2010 and also participated in a Robb Wolf seminar on Paleo nutrition. In September of 2011 I opened my own CrosFit affiliate (RSA CrossFit) and absolutely enjoy it. Looking back today, I really have to thank Ben Larkin for motivating me to open my own affiliate.
My Work/Rest Schedule
I do multiple workouts in a day 3+ times a week
I strictly schedule my rest days
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
I typically follow the suggested 3 on 1 off regiment. I however, incorporate a 3 on 2 off schedule every other 3 day cycle of working in out. Here's what I do: 3 on 1 off, 3 on 2 off, then repeat. I also really listen to my body and rest as needed. I think it's important for CrossFit athletes to chill sometimes, especially when your not getting enough sleep and you start to notice that your recovery time begins to suffer. CrossFitters are notorious for over training. Be smart and rest because it will increase your output and strength gains.
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
Religiously for about 4 years and feel the best I've ever felt in years.
